Mango Lassi (Mango Yogurt Smoothie)

 

Try this creamy yummy Mango Lassi recipe, an Indian subcontinental drink that is basically a smoothie from ripe mangoes, yogurt and some spices. | www.foxyfolksy.comLassi is a traditional India Subcontinental drink which is made by blending yogurt, water and spices and sometimes, fruits. It can be either savory or sweet.  It is usually a drink to neutralize hot and spicy foods. Mango Lassi is a sweet Lassi that is gaining popularity around the world. There are a lot of different versions of this drink but I prefer it a bit thick and creamy yet it is so refreshing with its contrasting flavors of sweet, tangy and a little salty that makes this drink interesting indeed and definitely yummy.  

Today, I tried to recreate an unforgettable Mango Lassi that I had in an Indian restaurant when I was in Hong Kong some years ago. My then company would sometimes send us on a business trip to our HO in HK to learn their process that they wanted our team (in the Philippines) to handle. Our HK colleagues were really nice and brought us to some of the best restaurants around Quarry Bay.  It was there that I had my first taste of authentic Indian food and it was a good experience, better than what I expected actually. The food was great but it was the Mango Lassi that made a lasting impression on me.

Don’t ask me why, but that is what the HK Immigration officer told me. Perhaps it was a simple misunderstanding but because of the wrong choice of word I was held for further questioning. Luckily, it only took about an hour or so until they called our HO and they explained everything and I was cleared but believe me that was really an unnerving experience! It did not put me off from coming back to Hong Kong though. I actually came back several times both for business and personal reasons and sometimes with my family. And I would always love Hong Kong because it was there where Armin proposed to me, but that is another story for another time.
